neon maxi skirt

How cool is this look? I think she hit the perfect note with the neon maxi skirt, and balanced its boldness with edgy biker boots and a howling coyote tee. The key is to use neutral accents and not to overload the aesthetic. This outfit is truly all about the skirt. Come on, how can fashion be more fun than this!? I wish more people had a lighthearted approach to dressing up…

I had a blast recreating the look below on Polyvore:

I’m going to be totally cliché and say there’s no better accessory than a beautiful laugh. I wouldn’t feel like such an asshole if it wasn’t true. That’s the thing about clichés, they’re annoying because they’re usually spot on. Well, in any case, I think this is a great easy weekend outfit. Bright red tee, high waisted denim shorts (preferably thrifted), and killer suede ankle boots, like the bad boys I hunted down for you below. You know, sometimes it’s the simplest looks that allow our personalities to shine…
